Northern Outlook - - WAIMAKARIRI UNITED FC -

Pe­ga­sus parkrun and the North Can­ter­bury Athletics Club are run­ning a com­bined event this week­end in a na­tional first. The 68th Pe­ga­sus parkrun will be run in con­junc­tion with the North Can­ter­bury Club Cham­pi­onships, with run­ners tak­ing aim at the 5km course records. Pe­ga­sus parkrun’s Ge­off McMil­lan said this year has seen a much closer re­la­tion­ship be­tween parkrun NZ and Athletics NZ, but this will be the first in­stance of a com­bined event. David Atkin­son holds the men’s record of 16.11 min­utes, while the women’s record be­longs to Freya Pren­tice, 17.43 min­utes.
